Ice Rescue Technician
2 days ( 1 classroom day, 1 day on the ice)
This course is valuable training for personnel who work on frozen lakes or rivers, or for those who respond to incidents where someone has fallen through the ice. The emphasis is on determining ice strength, identifying risks, self rescue and low-risk methods of rescuing others.
A Customized Approach to Ice Safety and Rescue
Resource management personnel and outdoor guides will emphasize determining ice strength and hazards as they are often required to work on surface ice for several hours or even days at a time, while first responders will spend more time learning the finer points of a “go rescue” and the Incident Command System as it pertains to ice rescue. All students will cover the full range of skills and knowledge required for certification. This course is compliant with the NFPA 1670 Standard for technical ice rescue incidents.
